Hambleton Nightmare Yorkshire Porter pours a thin dark brown with a light tan frothy head. The taste is nicely mellowed of malts and barley. Malt aromas are most dominant and moderatly strong in the smell. Mouthfeel is silky smooth and creamy. There is a moderate amount of carbonation and a light and airy feel that makes this quite pleasant as well. Drinkability right off the bat is suprisingly good with its nice smooth mouthfeel; however, the taste is somewhat lacking and really hides behind everything else. The taste comes out a little more as it warms, but still not enough to have a big wow factor.
